  • Skytrak now compatible with swing catalyst

    https://www.skytrakgolf.com/swing-catalyst

    All very interesting. Now you can film yourself with high speed cameras and have it integrated with your Skytrak ball flight data.

    Is this the next step towards club tracking?

    25% off for the first 50 buyers. Curious what the difference in fidelity is between the two cameras (i.e. if the higher end models is worth paying $500 more).

      Why not available in Canada?

        The main difference is the technology.

        The PRO variant comes with a USB 3.0 Machine Vision camera, with a 1280x1024 resolution sensor and 149 FPS. Whereas the Starter variant comes with a USB 2.0 web camera with a resolution of 1280x720 at 120 FPS. The cheaper camera has some image compression, automatic sharpening etc (things you usually will find in a web camera).
        The cheaper camera requires slightly more distance from the camera to the golfer as it has a slightly smaller sensor (1/4") vs the PRO variant's 1/2" sensor.

        Ultimately it depends on what kind of setup you're looking for. The more expensive option has stricter hardware requirements and cable length limitations but has a superior image compared to the cheaper one. If you just want something easy to use that is plug and play the starter variant is definitely easier in that regard.

        At the moment this promotional deal is not available in the UK and Canada.

          I am being a nitpicker, but 1/2" is 400 percent larger sensor than 1/4", which all else the same should result in significantly lower illumination requirement.

          You are correct, the sensor size does make a difference.

          What makes a camera good in low lighting conditions has a lot of factors, such as the sensor type, pixel size, how well the sensor handles gain, and so on. To be clear, the sizes you are referring to is technically the sensor format, not the actual sensor size or the sensors active area.

          Bottomline, the Chameleon is a much better camera than the Kayeton. Both are widely used on this site for swing recording.

        Is there an option to just purchase the software?

          Currently the sales bundles include a camera (both the starter & pro kits).
          Nevertheless you need a camera of some sort to use Swing Catalyst (an iPhone or Android phone will not work in this case).
          If you were to purchase the software alone, it'd be the along the same price as the starter kit.

          Considering it's 25% off for the first 50 sales, it's really a bargain!
